End of Year Updates

We have come to the end of another successful year. I wanted to just go thru a few new tenants and updates on things I have mentioned in the past but people have missed due to them getting pushed down the list of blog entries.

Also I want to mention again that the comments are reviewed before they are posted.  These blogs get spammed so I have to approve comments before they show up.  I try to do that as soon as I see you have written something.  It is very rare that I will not post someones comment.  They would have to be very nasty.

I appreciate the input I receive from everyone.

Harris Teeter in California, MD is set to open January 24th. 

Sunbelt Rentals is taking over the former Victory motorcycle dealership on Crain Highway in White Plains, MD.  Renovations are being done to the building now.

The Army Reserve Training Center is under construction in White Plains off of Route 227(Marshall Corner Road).  This is a 90,000 square foot training and recruitment center.

Shark Bar has recently signed a lease at the Pinefield South Shopping Center.  This is a new venture for this group so don't confuse it with any one else with the same name.  It may be a different group.
I hope to get more details in the future.

 Once Upon a Child is under construction at Waldorf Marketplace III next to Fosters Grille.  They specialize in gently used children's clothes, toys, and furniture.

We have four tenants so far for the retail portion in Brandywine and are working on the pad sites now.  Tenants include Verizon, Hibachi Grill, Serenity Nails and Chipotle

Brandywine Aquatic Center

The Brandywine Aquatic Center is under construction on Missouri Avenue off of Brandywine Road.
Updated opening is Spring 2019.  You can follow it here:

Habit Burger is under construction at the Shops at Waldorf Center.  Late Winter / Early Spring opening.

Baldus Retail Center

Baldus retail center in La Plata will have a local brand quick service chicken restaurant and a Davita Dialysis Center.  Rumor of Nick's of Clinton are false.

That's all for now.  Have a wonderful holiday and happy new year!

Thank you Chris for keeping us all updated on the commercial happenings here in Southern Maryland. I can't speak for everyone, but I truly appreciate it. Have A Safe and Happy Holiday!

Yes thank you Chris for keeping us informed about what is going on in our community

Anything on the old Sport and Health building on Post Office Road? That is a perfectly good gym that our Charles County youth could really use.

Chris Shasho said...

The old sport and health club was purchased by the county. I had heard it was to be used for seniors and other programs. No word on when that would open.

Donald Stapleson said...

I also want to thank you for keeping us updated in Southern Maryland. Happy Holidays!

Chris. It's really great you take the time to keep us all in the loop of what's going on in our towns. Thank you. Do you know what is going in on Mervell Dean near the Tractor Supply?

Great, nice to see somd en route to keeping pace with other communities. Any suggestions on getting Chaney Field on Substation rd cleaned up. The grass is in desperate need of cut. It's where folks consider the " old Waldorf ".

The building going by the Tractor Supply on Mervell Dean Rd is a Dollar General.

Thanks for the wonderful blog to keep us informed of the projects.
1. Any word on the old Sports Authority or HH Gregg buildings in Waldorf? I'm thinking either one would be a good location for something like Harbor Freight Tools.
2. Do you know if there is a road going from the backside of Brandywine Commons to Brandywine Road? It looks like there is clearing behind the now former Shell station on 301.
3. This might be out of your normal areas, but any idea if anything will be done with the former car lots in Upper Marlboro (MD4/US301)?

Shelby Higgs said...

Will there be an Ulta store coming to St Mary’s county? I have heard a lot about it.

Chris Shasho said...

Burlington is going to move over to the sports authority space. The Burlington is easier to cut up for other tenants.
The only road I’m aware of is the one connecting Brandywine Crossing to Brandywine road.

No idea on the car dealers. Sorry

I have not heard about ulta. Where is it rumored to be going?

Upeedina Lamb said...

This Lamb would like to see Hobby Lobby, Cost Plus World Market, and an Apple store in Waldorf.

Donald Stapleson said...

+1 on the Apple Store here. I'm tired of having to drive to Pentagon City.

Chris Robertson said...

Is the Starbucks still slotted to go into the Harris Teeter plaza? Still plans to have drive-thru?

Chris Shasho said...

Yes it will have a drive thru.

What is the status of Lidl coming to Charles County?

Chris Shasho said...

One is still working in Waldorf. I will know for sure in march.

Donald Stapleson said...

Do you know if the Sam's Club in Waldorf is one the stores being closed down by Walmart?

Chris Shasho said...

Ours is safe.

Re-programmed said...

Hi Chris! Do you know if there are still plans to build a SMD Indoor Sports Complex On Demarr rd?

Any idea what will replace the recently torn down RIP's restaurant?

Chris Shasho said...

They still want to build a sports center but lack funding.

I did a post on the new center where rips was in October. Still in the planning phase.
